Current Favorites: Books, Playlist & TV Show



Hello guys! I can't believe it's December 20 already! Just 11 days more towards the new year😱 I'm so excited and quite scared because I don't know what lies ahead (nobody knows but Him). The only thing that I can do is do my best in everything, expect for the best and always be prepared for the worst. This year had been hectic with the friend dramas, my dramas, the business, everything.

I've been spending most of my holiday at home, there are not a lot of new things except for new books, or music I just found on Spotify. But I'll still write about it nonetheless because these things I'm writing about are the things that I'm obsessed with throughout this holiday.


Books:

1. Let It Snow by Maureen Johnson, John Green, Lauren Myracle



I found this book at the library and I immediately knew that I would love it. One, because it's so Christmas-y and I love everything Christmas-y (Christmas movies, books, songs, vibe, decorations). Two, because it's co-written by John Green, one of my favorite authors! So I took a risk by borrowing this book even when my debt to the library already reached 3 digits (omg). When the librarian warned me to not return any book late anymore, I was so embarrassed but I tembokkan muka nonetheless to borrow this book.

I'm not going to spill anything about this book, as I'm going to write a review about it soon.


2. Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell




I know, I know. I'm so lame because everyone already read this and I'm left far behind. Actually, I could just get an e-book of this, but I want to have a copy of the book and not read the e-book version. I know the content is the same, but the feeling is not the same. So I ordered it from bookdepository along with 2 other books, and this book arrived first! I got it in my hand yesterday, and finished it yesterday, in one sitting. That's how determined I was to read this book. Now, I can't get the book out of my system.

Why I love this book so much:
- I love Park.
- The mix tapes! The Smiths, The U2, The Cure, The Beatles, all old bands that I love are mentioned.
- I never fell in love, but when I read this book, the love is described with enough details to make me feel the feelings Eleanor and Park feels.
"I told you that I don't like you". I love it when Eleanor or Park says this. I don't know why, maybe because it lets me know how much they feel about each other, it's so much more than just 'like'.



Playlist(s):

1. Christmas & Chill - Ariana Grande



I've been loving this EP since last year, when it was released. Since Christmas is around the corner, I think why not I start listening to Christmas playlists? I don't celebrate Christmas, but I love the vibes. To be honest, I think I love every festival vibes. During the Chinese New Year phase, I love it when Chinese New Year's songs are played in supermarkets.

Back to the EP. It contains 6 tracks which are:

-Intro
-Wit It This Christmas
-December
-Not Just On Christmas
-True Love
- Winter Things
*click to listen to the song*

My personal favorites are True Love and Winter Things💕


2. NEW YEAR PLAYLIST 😀✨💞 (my Spotify playlist)

In the beginning of this post, I mentioned that I'm excited and scared for new year. When I'm scared, I usually try to run away from the things that I'm scared of. But the thing is, I can't run from new year. I have no other option than facing it. Since music is one of the things that help me get through 'stuffs' in my life, I thought of creating a playlist for me to get spirited for new year.

No more starting the first day of school with too much fear (I hope).

My new year playlist contains:

-Are You Gonna Be My Girl - Jet
-Just The Girl - The Click Five
-Dancing Song - Little Comets
-Little Games - The Colourist
-Don't Dream It's Over - Sixpence None The Richer
-Kiss Me - Sixpence None The Richer
-Boys Don't Cry - The Cure
-I Can Only - JoJo, Alessia Cara
-Cynical - blink-182
-Future Looks Good - OneRepublic
-Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
-Girls Talk Boys - 5 Seconds of Summer
-We Will Rock You - Queen
-We Are The Champions - Queen
-Tear In My Heart - Twenty One Pilots
*click to listen*

My favorites among the favorites are Don't Stop Believin', Don't Dream It's Over and We Are The Champions. The old songs are always the best👍



TV Show

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo



I seriously can't even describe my love for this drama. Oh my God. Lets talk about how sweet Joon-hyung (Nam Joo Hyuk) is. Or how cute Bok Joo (Lee Sung Kyung) is. Gosh, I've been obsessing over this drama for days now. I started binge watching it last Friday because whenever I open my Twitter, all they talk about is about this drama. So I was curious. Plus, Nam Joo Hyuk is the main actor. Now I'm waiting for the next episode, which is plain crucial. Waiting isn't fun at all. That's why I usually choose a drama that is already completed instead of the on-going ones.

I can't even think why you need to watch this drama, for me, the fact that Nam Joo Hyuk is in it, and Lee Jong Suk was a cameo in it already enough to make me watch this drama and helplessly waiting for the next episode.

My latest OTP.


There, my first long post after weeks. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy sharing them with you. If one of these things is your favorite too, leave a comment below so we can fangirl about it together😆

Bye.

Lots of love,
Nabila. xo

    1. Joon-hyung and Bok-joo are seriously so cute, I ship them so much haha. Been planning to watch Goblin after WFKBJ finished! I heard a lot about it and Legend of the Blue Sea :)

  3. Eleanor and Park is a masterpiece! I still can't get over the fact that Eleanor and Park didn't end up together. I visited the author's website and she said that the reason why they both didn't get a happy ending was because they're sixteen and they need to have a beginning instead of a happy ending. I am wailing for days because of that book! I don't know if you're into tear-jerking books, but Me Before You (it's famous because of the movie, but I can assure you that the book is more, more sad than the movie) and also, dark fantasy books like the Miss Peregrine's Trilogy! They're wonderful, I promise. Once again, better than the movies ><

    And WFKBJ is freaking cute. No doubt! Goblin is great too! Their version of Grim Reaper is far more handsome than the original haha!

    1. I still hope that they get to be together longer, tho. I'm really into tear-jerking books, you guessed right! I agree that a lot of books are wayyyy better than movies. A lot of things are skipped when books are made into movies.

      I'm so frustrated that eps 14 for WFKBJ got postponed T_T And Lee Dong Wook as Grim Reaper is totally great hahaha
